Currently I live in Sofia with my dog Nala :)
Me... in short: I'm a Bavarian girl traveling the world!
in a bit longer: I grew up in a village close to Munich, Germany. Thanks to my studies I had the chance to live and travel in Australia, Canada and the States. Those first travels inspired me a lot and I decided to live abroad one day :) It's an amazing experience that changed my perspective on many things and got me into travelling! Now I want to see this amazing planet of ours, to dive into different cultures and to meet new friends from all over the world ;)!

About traveling :
“Every place is a goldmine. You have only to give yourself time, sit in a teahouse watching the passers-by, stand in a corner of the market, go for a haircut. You pick up a thread—a word, a meeting, a friend of a friend of someone you have just met—and soon the most insipid, most insignificant place becomes a mirror of the world, a window on life, a theatre of humanity.”
— Tiziano Terzani, A Fortune-Teller Told Me: Earthbound Travels in the Far East
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
because it's awesome. Through CS I met so many great people, had the chance to host nice travelers, to meet up with locals and to surf on people's couches on 4 continents
I like nature, good conversations, outdoors, hanging out on the beach, reading, of course travelling, taking pictures, since I was a little girl I love horsebackriding and lately I got into yoga and dancing a lot!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
watched a horror movie in the place where it was shooted, swam with turtles in Mexico and even better rescued turtles ;) , drove a motorbike through the beautiful mountains of Sapa, saw the sunset in the Atakama desert, met good friends around the world, chanted with monks in Nepal, worked in a pizza place in Gangnam, drank Caribbean rum on Caribbean islands, spent a few days at Sting's former house on Montserrat, danced the Brittany national dance and nobody could tell I'm not French :P, visited the amazing Salt Spring Islands with all it's beautiful art on it, at the airport in Kathmandu they put bullets in my luggage to see if the X-ray would find them ...
Teach, Learn, Share
travel and share, share and learn, learn and understand
I'm keen on learning pretty much everything, especially, languages and the guitar; I can share travel stories and experiences;
What I Can Share with Hosts
some practical advice about cheap travelling, some nice homemade food (especially the German Spätzle ;P), explore the world or simply hang out together, have a good conversation over a glass of red wine, some good stories and I can't wait to hear what you're going to share with me :)
